Forum Post: Wyoming Prepares Doomsday Contingency Plans “In the Event of a Complete Economic or Political Collapse in the United States”

House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote. It would create a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government.

The task force would look at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed. And House members approved an amendment Friday by state Rep. Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, to have the task force also examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.

The bill’s sponsor, state Rep. David Miller, R-Riverton, has said he doesn’t anticipate any major crises hitting America anytime soon. But with the national debt exceeding $15 trillion and protest movements growing around the country, Miller said Wyoming — which has a comparatively good economy and sound state finances — needs to make sure it’s protected should any unexpected emergency hit the U.S.

Several House members spoke in favor of the legislation, saying there was no harm in preparing for the worst.

Hilarious :). I think these folks enjoy getting juiced up on end of the world scenarios. It's like they've never been camping and don't realize you can be pretty happy and self sufficient with very little.

Someone in government must show some responsibility, if it's state government, so be it.

Let me explain it to you like you are 5 years old. If the US keeps printing money and borrowing then that money becomes worthless and people and countries will no longer accept it. When you can't buy anything you will either kill for food or be killed for the food you have.

This isn't some down the road problem, if the government doesn't stop this fiscal insanity, it will happen in your lifetime.
